There are still way too many cormorants on the lake and they are primarily breeding on Little Pelican Island and have absolutely destroyed every living thing on the island. This island used to be totally off limits for decades to everyone as it was a breeding ground for an endangered species of terns. There are also 5 major weedbeds missing out in the big lake that disappeared in the summer of "98". This includes the once famous "Portage Bay" weedbed which was the best in the state. There is still a lot of restoration and correction to be done on the lake to bring it back to it's full potential for fishing and as a resource for the people of this state. Managing the lake around the 1000 plus cormorants is incredibly ignorant and/or contemptful of the needs of the people in the area.
